We have hit a bit of a brick wall getting a Fez Hydra mainboard up and running on a Windows 7 64bit machine, running C# express 2010.
We have installed Visual C# Express 2010, and although the NETMF and Gadgeteer Package 2014 R2 itself failed, we did manage to install all its components, namely, MicroFrameworkSDK 4.2, GadgeteerCore, sam-ba2.12 and DfuSe_Demo_V3.0.3_Setup_amd64. (we also tried the x86 version of the latter, which failed, presumably because the 64bit version was already installed).
We are following the tutorial here:
The result is that we get as far as the ‘Choose a mainboard’ dialog. This window is empty and a warning is displayed, ‘No mainboards were found on this system. Please install a SDK from the manufacturer of your mainboard.’
We have searched widely for other SDKs for the Fez Hydra without luck. What are we doing wrong?
